Sleeping Beauty

I spent most of yesterday playing around in Photoshop Elements 9 and Lightroom 3. These were probably my 2 favorite gifts after my camera and f1.4 50mm lens. Jerry seemed a bit disappointed that I spent so much time on the laptop, so I decided to spend some of my afternoon behind the lens.

Natalie’s peaceful face during her nap was too tempting. I waited until she had slept long enough, then snuck into her room, pulled up the roman shade and began snapping. She only stirred once and didn’t wake up until long after I left her to continue her peaceful rest.

Here are some of my favorites from this afternoon.

Thanks to Rita from The CoffeeShop Blog for her wonderful storyboard. This was my first attempt at using the clipping masks. I hit a couple of trouble spots in selecting the right pictures for each spot, but I think the end result is wonderful.

I also managed to sneak in a great naptime profile shot of Natalie that I plan to use for a silhouette later this week.
